ZuluCrypt is an easy-to-operate graphical front end that is suitable for encrypting files, partitions, and drives with LUKS, TrueCrypt, VeraCrypt, and dm-crypt. ZuluCrypt cannot handle a complete encryption of the entire system, but it is able to scramble system partitions.

Data security in today's world has moved beyond the province of nerds and geeks. For example, users who travel frequently with a notebook and USB sticks want to prevent third parties from accessing their information if their devices get lost or stolen. In addition, government officials are becoming more interested in our data, particularly in airport settings.

Encryption software helps to protect secret and private data. Investigative journalists, whistleblowers, and activists living and operating in countries with repressive regimes depend for their livelihood, and sometimes even their lives, on good encryption.

This means that you must be able to rely completely on the integrity of the software being used. Encryption is the natural enemy of intelligence agencies all over the world. These agencies would prefer to have a back door for every piece of encryption software that is on the market.
